Lost Scattered and Confused

Today I was scrolling through my Facebook browser and I noticed that one of my friends is newly engaged. I wondered to myself: “What is it about someone else’s life events that make you question your own?” I feel obligated here to insert that I was happy for her. Even though that’s true I wonder why I feel obligated to say it? I started to look at my own life. I’ll be thirty in December, I don’t have a job, no kids, and I’ve never been married. The part that sticks out like a sore thumb is that I am almost thirty and I am unemployed. I never knew that so much of my value is tied up into what I do for a living. I feel lost scattered and confused and I have no idea how to get out of the feeling. I decided to bring it here. I know that I’m not the only person that’s going through this experience. I am hoping that if any of you have experience with what it takes to come back from the depths of unemployment and the affects of unemployment like depression, weight gain, and low self-esteem could lend a helpful tip. I’d appreciate it. Thanks for stopping by and let’s talk again soon.
